FURTHER RESEARCH ON THE QUADRANGULAR PRISM OF SELF-INVISIBILITY
Y. He. International Journal of Instrumentation and Control Systems08 (01):
A kind of novel pillar (used to support a windshield) has been designed to replace the conventional ones used in all sorts of vehicles. The prominent advantage of such a pillar is that it appears invisible so that the blind spots caused by A, B, C and D pillars will be diminished to a large extent or even eliminated completely. Therefore, the driver’s view is enlarged considerably. An intrinsic disadvantage of the new pillar, directionality and the invisibility rate with respect to the deviation from most-clear position, were investigated quantitatively and discussed.
